Carley Holzem, Pitcher, 2022, porcelain, cone 6.

Carley Holzem is a potter from Mosinee, Wisconsin. Most recently Holzem graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Stout (Menomonie) with a BFA in ceramics. Holzem’s work focuses on thrown porcelain sets of pottery meant for two or more people to share meals. Holzem believes that the experience of life can be enhanced in the simplest of ways by bringing presence and purpose to what are typically known as mundane tasks. Bringing meaning to repetitious actions creates a ceremony to look forward to every day. The love language of Holzem’s pots is to bring people together through food and quality time. These sets are a simple experience waiting for someone to discover them. Holzem has shown their ceramic work regionally, most recently at the University of Wisconsin – Stout.
